THE HAGUE – Parliament has been debating the cabinet's policy programme today. The detailed plans of the agreements outlined in the coalition agreement were drawn up after government politicians met with citizens and social organisations over the last 100 days.

The opposition says the policy programme is too vague. The Liberal VVD and high ranking officials both insist that the government has not devoted enough attention to the "real problems" of the labour and housing markets and the government finances.

The Christian democrat CDA, the largest coalition party, wants the government to quickly introduce a community service requirement for secondary school students. The coalition parties have dismissed the criticism of the financial policy.
